Ticket #391 (closed Defect: Behaves correctly)

'run' script installs Twisted plugins to wrong location on x86_64 systems

Reported by: s.adam@… Owned by: glyph@…
Priority: 3: Important Milestone: CalendarServer-3.x
Component: Calendar Server Severity: Other
Keywords: Cc:


I may have made a beginner's mistake as this is the first time I deal with Twisted, but I believe that CalendarServer installs the Twisted plugins to the wrong location on x86_64 systems.

CalendarServer will create a both '/usr/lib/python2.X/site-packages' (sitelib) and '/usr/lib64/python2.X/site-packages' (sitearch) directory and places the Twisted files in sitearch directory and the Twisted plugins in the sitelib. Attempting to start the server will have Twisted search only the sitearch directory and produce an error since the caldav plugin isn't known.

I am using Fedora 13 x86_64 which has Python 2.6.

If you install Twisted on your own before building this server, and it's detectable (ie. in PYTHONPATH), then the server should use that Twisted and not try to build and install its own. This is generally the best way to install.
